The US Customs and Border Protection Service will assist the Ukrainian State Border Guard Service (SBGS) in adopting a new model of border protection, reported SBGS's head Serhiy Deyneko.
Deyneko said that the SGBS's delegation was on a visit to Texas where it studied the specifics of work of the US Customs and Border Protection Service.
Ukrainian border guards saw how the border control and search for offenders are carried out in the United States, and which technical means are used at the border.
"We will actively use the acquired knowledge in the work of the Ukrainian State Border Guard Service. We will continue to test a new model of border protection at one of the sites, and the representatives of the US border and customs service will help us with that," said Deyneko. He noted that the Ukrainian border guards studied the work of the US Customs and Border Protection Service "at the border with Mexico, which is one of the most difficult areas”.
